Ho comprato da poco un Acer Aspire 5750G e girando su internet ho trovato la cartella efi che garantiva quasi tutto funzionante perfino il wifi (https://github.com/zipippino/HighSierraAspire5750G).
Allora felicissimo installo macOS e a parte incappare in errori stupidi, riesco a fare tutto, ma quando sono riuscito ad installare clover Legacy e sostituendo la roba con la 'mia' efi clover si avvia ma macOS no, semplicemente non carica (si nota anche pk la spia dell'hdd che dice se è in attivitá è spenta.
Qualcuno può aiutarmi?
Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.
CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)
Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI)
RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
DVD Drive: generic
PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not get iMessage to work properly. It worked precisely once, on my first installation attempt. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - if you can get NVRAM/PRAM working properly on this hardware, please do edit the config as you see fit.
Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
This built (607) is dimosgmx's built 606 ever-so-slightly edited* by me (BugsB) for usage in High Sierra beyond 10.13.3. It thus works in 10.12 - 10.13.6 (not yet tested in Mojave because I don't have it installed). Therefore I bumped CFBundleVersion to 607 and BuildVersion to 19 to differentiate it from dimosgmx's 606/ 18 which was only compatible up to 10.13.3.
You can use it side-by-side with the default Disk Utility.
NOT WORKING (at least not in High Sierra): functions which would invoke a Finder style window, like clicks onto "New Image", "Convert", "Resize Image", "Image", "File/ New/.." etc.
In case of issues with the default (original/ stock/ vanilla) Disk Utility: run killall diskmanagementd, also supplied in this package.
If you have the SIMBL plug-in AFLOAT installed and have not included AppleScript Utility in mySIMBL's blacklist**, you MUST blacklist Disk Utility 13 (607) (see screenshot "AFLOAT users mySIMBL application blacklist")!
Enjoy & Greetings
* Disk Utility 13 (607).app/Contents/MacOS/loader.sh:
Added two instances of:
sudo killall diskmanagementd
** in mySIMBL: System Info/ SIMBL application blacklist (because Afloat is NOT fully compatible with Apple Scripts (parts of Disk Utility 13 (60x))
PS: let me know if it also works in Mojave. Include your EXACT version (10.14.0/ .1/ .2 /.3 BETA etc.)
